Lead, Kindly Light

“The path ahead-one step enough for me, Lead on, lead on, kindly Light…”

 

Full lyrics of Audrey’s version below. From Wikipedia: “Lead, Kindly Light is a hymn with words written in 1833 by John Henry Newman as a poem titled ‘the Pillar of Cloud’.”

Lead, kindly Light, amidst the grey and gloom
The night is long and I am far from home
Here in the dark, I do not ask to see
The path ahead-one step enough for me
Lead on, lead on, kindly Light.

I was not ever willing to be led
I could have stayed, but I ran instead
In spite of fear, I followed my pride
My eyes could see, but my heart was blind
Lead on, lead on, kindly Light.

And in the night, when i was afraid
Your feet beside my own on the way
Each stumbling step where other men have trod
Shortens the road leading home to my God

Lead on, lead on,
My God, My God,
Lead on, lead on, kindly Light.
